Well redspy, your post is slightly confusing, but it sounds like you will be fine. If you had a 1062 OG, and you have pitched yeast, provided you keep a handle on fermentation temperature you will end up with tasty beer and very acceptable ABV %.

The slightly low mash temperature will give you a more fermentable wort and possibly a slightly less sweet end product, but certainly not a big issue.

I am assuming your OG was taken after the boil. There's not much point measuring it right after sparging. To calculate your actual ABV, you need to remember to take a final gravity just before you bottle.

Thanks for your reply. I'm still pretty new to brewing so I appreciate it. After reading your post I feel pretty confident all will be good. I wasn't sure when I should be taking gravities. I am fermenting at about 68 degrees. I didn't see a specific temperature to ferment at on the recipe.

If a recipe doesn't list a temp range for fermenting, it is best to just follow the guidelines for the yeast. For this beer, I would try for the lower half of the range to minimize esters but that is all personal preference. Either way is going to make good beer.

hey,
i am planning to brew this beer in a few days but have some questions.
I am from Europe and in the place I live in, it is impossible to find 2 row US pale malt.
Can I substitue it with pilzner malt, or English pale malt will be a better choice?
cheers!

Most will dry hop for 3 days or up to a week.

Well I feel foolish. I have been reading through this thread again and stumbled upon a post in it mentioning that the app for ios cuts off the top of the recipe. I of course am using said app. Man I wish I had realized that before. Thanks everyone for the help!


New question though. Anyone object to dry hopping for a week in the primary? I really don't want to keg hops.
